(Sports Network) - The Toronto Blue Jays take aim at their first series win since early July as they host the Houston Astros in the final chapter of a four- game set at Rogers Centre. After Houston lost the first two games of the series, Chris Carter clubbed a three-run home run as part of a four-run first, and the Astros held off Toronto, 8-6, on Saturday to ensure there would be no sweep. Jason Castro added an RBI single in the early outburst, while Justin Maxwell and Matt Dominguez stroked back-to-back homers in the fourth to help the Astros snap a three-game skid. The Astros managed to tally eight runs on eight hits, but also fanned a total of 14 times. Houstons bullpen snapped a 10-game streak of allowing at least one run as Jose Veras held the Blue Jays scoreless for the final 1 2/3 innings to notch his 19th save of the campaign. Houston will try to even the series as it sends prospect Jarred Cosart to the hill. The 23-year old rookie pitched eight scoreless innings in his MLB debut on July 12 at Tampa Bay to collect his first career win. Cosart was very good in his second appearance as well as he surrendered only one earned run over seven innings versus Oakland on Tuesday to improve to 2-0. The initial thrill of playing in the big leagues played a factor in his first home appearance. "My stuff wasnt as good for me today early in the game," Cosart said. "I was kind of out of sync and couldnt feel any part of my body in the first inning. There was a lot of pressure, no matter what anyone says, pitching in front of 30-something thousand." Todd Redmond will take the hill for Toronto. The right-hander has been efficient since being promoted to the MLB earlier this month, not allowing more than three runs in any of his four starts. Redmond took a no-decision on Tuesday after a season-long 5 2/3 innings in which he allowed three earned runs. Toronto had a solid performance offensively in Saturdays loss, just not enough to overcome Josh Johnsons poor showing. Jose Bautista belted a three-run homer, Mark DeRosa and Colby Rasmus each hit a solo shot, and Edwin Encarnacion went 4-for-4 with an RBI. Encarnacion is 8-for-10 with two home runs and seven RBI through the first three games of the series. After hitting safely in six of his first seven at-bats in the series, Jose Reyes went 1-for-4 with a strikeout in Saturdays loss. The Astros won five of the first six games played by the two franchises, including a three-game sweep in Houston in 2005 and two of three in Toronto in 2011. Houston has the worst record in baseball at 35-68, which includes a 17-31 mark in road games. Toronto is in last place in the AL East at 47-56 and is 27-28 at home.

This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- After three straight comeback victories, the surprising Vancouver Canucks showed they can also protect a lead.Jacob Markstrom made 26 saves and Daniel Sedin scored the game-winner in the third period Thursday night as Vancouver downed the Buffalo Sabres 2-1, a victory that left the Canucks as the NHLs only undefeated team on the young season.Just coming back in games, that was huge early, Sedin said. Those first two, three games where we came back from behind, thats when you realize you can play your system. Keep playing your system, even when youre down 3-0, its going to pay off.Thats calmed everyone down and made everyone really believe we can do it.Not expected to do much this season after missing the playoffs two of the last three years, the Canucks (4-0-0) scored a shootout win followed by consecutive overtime victories despite trailing through two periods in each game to become the first team in league history to win its first three outings while never holding a regulation lead in any of those games.Thursdays formula was a little different, but the result turned out the same.We dont want to be coming from behind in the third period in every single game, said Jannik Hansen, who scored the 100th goal of his career to open the scoring. Its not something you can do over a long stretch.Brandon Sutter added two assists as Vancouver won for the fourth time in six nights, tying a franchise mark set in 1992-93 for victories to start a season.We talked before the game, you cant get down by a goal or two and wake up, Sutter said. We wanted to come out and get that first one and we did. We probably didnt play as good as we wanted to in the second half, but we will take the points.Nicholas Baptiste scored his first NHL goal in his second game for the Sabres (1-2-1), who got 18 saves from Robin Lehner.Its obviously exciting for me, but we didnt get the win and thats unfortunate, Baptiste said. Im happy to get that first one.The Canucks led 1-0 through two periods and stretched that lead to two at 9:10 of the third when their power play -- 0 for 12 up to that point this season -- finally connected. Lehner robbedd Sutter at the side of the net, but Loui Eriksson fed a nice pass to Sedin, who buried his second.ddddddddddddt was good to get one, Sedin said. I think everyones going to relax a little bit and start moving the puck better.The Sabres penalty kill had gone a perfect 11 for 11 before Vancouver struck.It may be my fault, Buffalo coach Dan Bylsma said. I happened to see the number before going out for the third period. They were at zero and we were at 100 percent and they get the power-play goal. I regret that a little bit.But the Sabres kept coming, and after Ryan OReilly had a great chance that Alexander Edler swept off the goal line, Baptiste scored a strange one. The rookie forward threw the puck in front and it struck Vancouvers Jack Skille as he battled with Nicolas Deslauriers. The puck caromed toward Markstroms net, off Edlers stick and in at 11:23.The Sabres had a couple of looks from there, but a late penalty for too many men on the ice took the wind out of their sails before the Canucks held on with Lehner on the bench for an extra attacker.Markstrom, 3-0-0 this season, made his second straight start in place of Ryan Miller, who served as the backup after sitting out last game with general tightness.I love every second out there, Markstrom said. When stuff like this happens you have to be ready to come in and play.Vancouver was just 3-30-1 when trailing after 40 minutes last season, and each victory in 2016-17 before Thursday came after the club trailed through two periods. The Canucks didnt require a comeback Thursday after Hansen scored at 11:10 of the second, the Canucks first lead in 218:22 this season.Game notes The Sabres were once again without injured Fs Jack Eichel (ankle) and Evander Kane (ribs) as they wrapped up a three-game road trip through western Canada that also included a 6-2 win over Edmonton and a 4-3 overtime loss in Calgary.UP NEXT:Sabres: are off until Tuesday, when they visit Philadelphia.Canucks: will hit the road for the first time this season on Saturday in Los Angeles.
